Crucial Littlewoods meeting tomorrow

The future of the Littlewoods football pools and retail empire could be decided tomorrow at a crucial meeting of the 32 Moores family shareholders who control the group. The two-day gathering will decide whether to progress the planned pounds 1.2bn bid from former chief executive Barry Dale. It comes ahead of next week's emergency shareholders' meeting where Mr Dale will need a majority vote to gain acess to the books and turn his indicative offer into a full-scale bid.
